Meetings Man followed up a win over hurdles with victory back on the Flat at Yarmouth during the week. He'll find this more difficult under a penalty taking on last month's course and distance winner SUNNY FUTURE. The latter has since gone close again over a longer trip in better company at this track and Richard Hughes can steer him to another success in this. Both three-year-olds should go well as Halling's Treasure went within a length of winning a maiden at Chepstow last time and Neamour wasn't beaten far at Kempton on her handicap bow.
